. no growth. >> of the freedom continuous on this >>> so will conservatives pick paul ryan to win straw poll today? we have to wait and see. we already know they are praising the new budget plan with a lot less spending in it than the president's budget plan. $4.6 trillion less over ten years. enough to balance the budget by 2023. some at forbes say it doesn't cut nearly enough. welcome to forbes on fox. let's look at the flipside with elizabeth mcdonald. john, rick, mike and mark. and john, democrats pick on the ryan plan and say it cuts too much. you say it doesn't cut nearly enough. that is the flipside. explain. >> a balanced budget is not small government. under the plan government spending will increase the next ten years when we get to a balanced budget in 2023. it will be $4.1 trillion. 3.4% annual increases in spending versus 5% under the democrats plan. rean thinks this is small government. he is playing bad politics because his base put him in there to it reduce the burden of government and this will greatly expand it. >> mark, john has a point. the ryan budget averages out to $4.
if you look at what paul ryan does to balance the budget, it means that you have to voucherize medicare, you have to slash deeply into programs like medicaid. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. >> jon: so president obama there appearing on abc telling george stephanopoulos that balancing the budget is not his goal and attacking congressman paul ryan for the budget that he proposed. so, jim, to you first. did the media ignore the president's contention that a balanced budget is not really in the realm for him? >> i don't think the media have ever thought of that as a particularly high goal for themselves and yet, as scott loopo, american conservative and matt miller "the washington post," both pointed out the problem the president's had on this sort of moderate budget course he's trying to strike, which is part tax increases and part this alleged spending cuts, nobody is really for that and too vague and also used the word gut g-u-t when it refers to medicare i think is the beginning of the 2014 mid term elections, where the democrats are going to com
strong budget that balances in ten years. >> paul ryan's budget this week is coming under criticism for using fuzzy math repeals obama care but then uses the revenue that it would generate. he uses revenue from unspecified tax reform and doesn't identify single loophole in there that you would close. how is this honest accounting and how does this help lend legitimacy to the budget process that many americans feel has become kind of a farce? >> there are no budget gimmicks. in fact it's not our numbers that we're using. there's an independent referee that scores everybody's budget. they score our budget, the president's budget which doesn't exist yet but when he files it they will score that. in our budget they actually score the house budget to balance in ten years. and what paul does, a budget doesn't actually implement tax reform. it calls for tax reform. it calls on the various committees of jurisdiction to do certain things. we'll be calling on our natural resources and energy and commerce committee to increase energy production for example. that doesn't say exactly how to do i
for the young. >> paul ryan's latest edition of his path to prosperity isn't too duff than other versions. he plans to drastically curb spending, reform the tax code what increasing revenue and actually reform the budget in ten years, and the president is way behind his february 4th deadline to put forth a proposal and he doesn't have much time left. >> my goal is not to achieve a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. my goal is how do we grow the economy, but america back to work? >> america doesn't really have a budget right now, it has a continual resolution, which is an extension of an earlier budget. that expires on march 27th. if government goes beyond that without a patch, they could shut down. we're supposed to have an actual budget resolution voted on and in place by april 15th, but we're way behind on that. on may 18th, we're set to hit the debt ceiling. some say that could be the showdown. i want to bring in nancy, with the "new york times." andy, let's start with you. both sides put budgets out. everybody knows that neither of these budgets are going anywhere. what happens
and paul ryan also spoke at the conference but just as striking who wasn't there. new jersey governor chris christie who applauded president obama for his response to hurricane sandy right before the election, was not invited. and yesterday members did not react well to ohio senator rob portman announcing his son is guy and now supports gay marriage. >>> coming up next at 5:00, a first for san francisco, the new cruise ship calling the city home. we'll hear from the passengers taking part in the inaugural trip. >> we'll introduce you to the man who was chosen to design a chal is for the pope. >> reporter: live in san carlos, a former 49er is saying good-bye to fans and also raising money for a charity very close to his heart. that story coming up. >> so far a sunny start to st. patrick's day weekend. we're still seeing temperatures outside right now in the 70s around the north bay, a little breezy out there but you can see the clear skies right now. look to west, more clouds filling in and changes ahead. we've got rain back in the 7-day forecast. will it arrive for the end of the weekend? w
. congressman paul ryan taking in that budget cuts, as well. republicans put forth their own spending blueprint. response.e republican >> president obama and senate democrats say they want a balanced approach to our fiscal issues but their budget is ever balance, ever. taxesd they want to raise to fuel more spending. we know where this path leads, straight into a debt crisis. what does look like? first lenders will demand a higher interest rate. higher interest rates across the country will skyrocket on credit cards, mortgages, car loans. if interest rates rise debt payments will overwhelm all other items in the budget. the debt will overwhelm our economy. our finances will collapse. the safety net will unravel. the most honorable will suffer. you think this cannot happen here? just look at europe. we do not accept that future, not for our children and country. today we invite president obama to do with president clinton did, to work with republicans in congress to balance the budget. he can join in the efforts or he can choose the status quo. but he must choose. the american people deserve an
: the house budget committee chairman paul ryan says he thinks president's trip to capitol hill to meet with republicans is a good start but he thinks the bipartisan spirit needs to last through summer at least if any problems are going solved. >> gregg: a lot has been said about the approaching $17 trillion in debt. how much of that debt factoring into the negotiations if f at all? >> reporter: a little bit. we got one text from dick durbin what the president meant when he said there is no immediate debt prices. >> we need to put americans back to work. that is our first priority. deficit reduction is second priority and one is coupled with economic growth. so i think we can do both. make sure we have deficit reduction but don't cut too much too fast. >> reporter: the speaker boehner says known the national debt will reach crisis level but because of that uncertainty action should be taken now before it is too late. >> gregg: the president said it was $9 trillion as the crisis and now he says it is not even though it's approaching $17 trillion. >> heather: new reaction to a guilty verd
is undermining the ryan budget. we have worked with paul ryan and his budget committee. and many of the budget committee members are rfc members. >> can you describe the key differences between the rfc budget, and the ryan budget? is ine, the ryan budget 10 years. that was a big objective republicans have pushed for. i have a five-year-old and three-year-old, and i do not think it is asking too much to balance the budget before they graduate from high school. right now the way the cbo scores it, we will balance in four years. save all working to medicare from bankruptcy. it goes bust right now and 11 years. we support the concept, but we are implementing premium support for people aged 59 or younger. i do not think that is a big difference philosophical it, because at the end of the day where both saving it from bankruptcy. president obama does not save it from bankruptcy at all. obama care expedites the bankruptcy. i think what we're doing is building upon the foundation and a strong budget that balances in 10 years. >> it is coming under criticism for fuzzy math. he uses revenue from unspeci
. >>> in the republican's weekly address kongman paul ryan talked about his plan to balance the budget. ryan said that a balanced budget would make a difference, far beyond just crunching numbers. >> but the crucial question isn't how we balance the budget, it's why. the budget is a means to an end. we are not balancing the budget as an accounting exercise. we're not trying to simply make numbers add up. we're trying to improve people's lives. >> ryan's proposal includes a repeal of the obama health care plan and makes dramatic changes to medicare through those changes -- though those changes wouldn't affect current enrollees. >>> kongman ryan was overshadowed by senator rand paul at the c spak convention this weekend. rand paul won 25% of the vote. senator marco rubio was a strong second at 23%. rick santorum was next and then governor chris christie. and ryan is in sixth place. senator paul benefited from his 13-hour filibuster. questioning the potential use of drones on u.s. soil. his dad ron paul won the cpac straw poll in 2010 and 2011. >>> sarah palin she still knows how to fire up the cons
, like john mccain , no matter the cost of personal privacy. then one up and no less than paul ryan he says he can balance the budget in ten years. rand paul says to my will to it in five. no program is too sacred that it cannot be sliced. no party chanted monday at the kennedy challenged. creating a grand old -- but no one yet as one bigger applause, which is why i predict demand by the way, you should probably read this and pencil. no one will garner more votes. a straw poll is actually just a snapshot in time. once he wins this one, i am telling you. he could be on his way. if this does not happen this whole thing did not happen. former florida republican congressman on whether he is going to be the gop man. what do you think? >> well, how are you doing? welcome to cpac, 48 anniversary. i think that you have a good assessment on what could happen with this straw poll. one of the main reasons why that could happen is because we are still within one week of senator rand paul doing the filibuster on the drug issues. it was a constitutionali issue. it talk to the civil liberties. he bro
trump, jeb bush, mitt romney and paul ryan spoke at the conference. it was just as striking who wasn't there, new jersey governor, christien kaft christt invited. >>> journalists have been in roam during the process of picking a pope. today, the pope held his first press conference and done something no other pope has done in recent history. he cracked a couple jokes. jay gray has more from rome. >>> the lines stretched for blocks. journalists allowed in the vatican. pope francis spoke for 20 minutes in the casual time straying from his notes, but never from his message. saying oh, how i wish for a church for the poor. >> this man is saying toward the poor, toward the work of social justice. francis is a figure of peace. i think it's terrific. >> reporter: the crowd laughed and francis joked about how hard the media worked compared to the catholic church saying both convey a measure of truth, beauty and goodness. he spoke of how he chose his name. when things became dangerous, a fellow cardinal from brazil said don't forget the poor. right away, with regard to the poor, i thought of
name taken off the ballot. donald trump, jeb bush, mitt romney, paul ryan spoke at the conference but it was just as striking who was not there. new jersey governor chris christie, who applauded president obama for his response to hurricane sandy right before the election. and who did get 7% of the vote in this straw poll but was not invited. >>> president obama is planning to visit the bay area next month. the last time the president visited was in october. the white house says this time mr. obama will attend a fund-raiser in san francisco with house minority leader nancy pelosi on april 3rd. he's also scheduled to attend two democratic fund-raisers in atherton the following day, a lunch at the home of john goldman, part of the levi strauss family, and a brunch. >>> two employees at the popular music venue ash kens that have been upgraded to stable condition after being shot during a robbery. the music and dance center is near the corner of san pablo avenue and gillman street in berkeley. investigators say two men came in about midnight and demanded cash. two employees were shot.
spending up to near 25% of gdp. paul ryan in his proposal down to 19 1/2% over ten years. the gap between what barack obama is willing to do and what the republicans want to do is enormous. these are huge numbers and the idea that obama is going to do a compromise with them in the space in between i think is very unlikely, paul. >> paul: the other thing the president said this week that was interesting to republicans is, you need me, you need me to be able to sell and reform of medicare and medicaid and giant programs to democrats. they'll never go along with it otherwise. is he right about that? >> look, if he's right or he's wrong, he shouldn't say it. one shouldn't say those taunting things to a group one is trying to do negotiation with. and to dan's point, one of the problems i think that the president has had in the polls is that he seems very often now not to be telling the truth. and in ways that are apparent to the american people. terrible things will happen with the sequester, nothing bad happens. well, we are going to cancel white house tours. oh, by the way, i didn't cancel t
the paul ryan budget would do but making sure it survives for generations to come. putting revenues on the table that are fair and won't penalize the working people across america and making sure it is a balanced approach. i think what bob corker just said from his side is a basic principles that both parties can rally around. >> chris: and real specifically because i want to pin you down on this, are you saying you would accept structuralle chains, not doing away with medicare but structural changes and cuts to entitlements? >> let me tell you in 10-12 years medicare goes broke. that unanswered questions unanswered questions acceptable. the paul ryan voucher aapproach is destructive of medicare. there are ways to approach it to reduce the cost of medical care and still keep our promise to seniors across america. >> chris: part of the problem in the debate is that the parties seem to be disagreeing about the importance of dealing with our national debt. i want to play what president obama said this week and also what he said back as a candidate in 2008. take a look. >> we don't have
, was next and former vice-presidential candidate paul ryan followed at 6%. as you saw, the two at the top of the poll were tea party favorites. the other highlight had a rocky road just to get to washington. starting with a rough-and-tumble primary battle in texas. i sat down with ted cruz and asked if he was surprised he is taking heat from the left and from within his own party. >> my focus is on addressing the challenges in our country. i think most americans are not really worried about political squabbles in washington. they are frustrated and they are frustrated because it seeps an awful lot of democrats and a fair number of republicans are not standing up and doing the right thing. my focus is to come to work and do my job. and in particular, stand for the constitution. our constitutional liberties are really being undermined right now and champion growth. our economy is stagnant and a lot of people are hurting. and that's where my focus remains, every day. >> shannon: you mentioned that republicans and democrats, you question whether or not they have read the constitution recently

, not eliminating medicare, as i'm afraid the paul ryan budget would do but making sure it will survive for generations to come and putting revenues on the table that are fair and will not penalize the working people across america and making sure it is a balanced approach. i think what bob corker said from his side is a basic set of principles, that both parties can rally around. >> chris: and, real specifically because i want to pin you done on this: are you saying you would accept structural changes -- as you say, not doing away with medicare but structural changes and cuts to entitlements. >> let me tell you what we are facing in ten, 12 years, medicare goes broke. that is unacceptable. we want to make sure that medicare is there for generations to come. and, that means making some reforms and some constructive changes. the paul ryan voucher approach is destructive of medicare. it will not survive. millions of americans will lose their benefits. but, there are ways to approach it. to reduce the cost of medical care, and still keep our promise to seniors across america. >> chris: par
to set up, both sides setting down on a bi-partisan basis not eliminating medicare as i'm afraid the paul ryan budget would do, but making sure it is going to survive for generations to come, putting revenues on the table that are fair and won't penalize the working people across america and making sure it's a balanced approach. >> eric: joining us now is the anchor of "fox news sunday", chris wallace. good morning, chris. >> morning, eric. >> eric: senator corker said he think there's a, quote, chance of a deal. what type of chance, one percent, half a percent, 60%? what's the bet? >> well, he didn't get that specific, but i think that both he and dick durbin were somewhat more optimistic, and i asked them about the key issue, and that was in the case of corker would you accept a tax increase if you got entitlement reform. he said yeah, we would, and conversely, i asked dick durbin, would you accept entitlement reform if you got a tax increase, and he said yes. so in principle, at least, that's what you need for a grand bargain. of course, the devil is in the details. i think the single-
know that. this week we saw both paul ryan and the senate democrats introduce their budgets, both likely dead on arrival. but at the same time the president met with house republicans. i want to get your take on what john boehner said after that meeting. listen to this. >> i thought we had a very frank and candid exchange of ideas. frankly i think it was productive. we know, however, there are some very real differences between our two parties, like issues jobs, balancing the budget, and what will we do to get our economy moving again. >> randy, do you think there's any common ground here? will we ever seen a compromise between the two sides. >> whenever i hear the phrase frank and candid, i know we completely disagreed but at least we had a discussion. i think that's positive. i think it's very positive both sides have put down markers for what they think is important. i agree with you that both of those are going to be dead on arrival but that doesn't mean that's not going to lead to now some sort of discussions, negotiations. before it was just very, very vague. one side likes
program and as paul ryan has with major new tax cuts and then imagine how you are going to sort of put that together in the end, that is a fundamental different. they are protective and therefore the permanent campaign hardball but they are not prepared to put at risk the full faith and credit of the united states. they are not prepared really to shut the government down. they just won't do that because they believe the government plays an important role. and i think conservatives, real conservatives want the government that they have and not a bit more or that they need, but they are not -- they are not wild and crazy about just dumping on that. and i think we have -- it is almost a radical perspective, not a conservative perspective against one that is more protective of the government, and i think the difference is real. >> i just want to throw out a theory that you can keep in the back of your head and i want to go to the hash tag even worse caucus where we have some comments. one theory is all bill clinton's the five false and i would explain that by saying that starting in the 19
the budget in ten years because if you look at what paul ryan does to balance the budget it means you have to voucherrize medicare. you have to slash deeply into programs like medicaid. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. >> mike: one of the republican congressmen who met with the president last week was oklahoma's james langford who joint us now. congressman, thanks for joining us. great to talk to you again. >> great to see you again, governor. >> mike: when you met with the president you were one of the congressmen and specifically pressed him about a balanced budget. he didn't seem that interested, did he? >> he did not. i asked if we could find some common ground and sade one of the key areas would be on a balanced budget. we may disagree on the method but at least agree on the principal of our budget should balance. it was the crown jewel of the clinton administration they could work with a republican house to finally come to a balanced put it an budget. he reiterated he doesn't feel like a balanced budget is a goal and i can't imagine simply sayin
of what their aspirations are. he had lunch with paul ryan yesterday. this is a change you think we should encourage, whether it's motivated for reasons we don't understand or not, ronald reagan would have done that. poor country to be successful, we have to put aside the truth that exists unrecognized because the other side doesn't have the used, it does not mean they are not motivated. we have to get to a different place or we can find broader consensus based on principles. that's how we will win. ronald reagan is someone who is a role model not because of his great success. he's also a role model for the political system they have today. imagine a country with energy resources we have, with the immigrant heritage that has been our blessing. with the ability to solve problems intractable today, this country will take off. this was the inspiration for the rest of the world. we will regain her footing and rebuild the face of this earth and requires leadership that they can show each and every day and that's why i'm honored to be here. thank you very much.

committee chairman paul ryan released a budget last week to balance the budget in ten years but a main tenant of the plan calls for repealing the president's affordable care act. >>> here in the bay area the fourth bore project of the caldecott tunnell is going to open to traffic later this year. construction has just started on road way that connects oakland and orinda. our transportation reporter got a look inside. >> there will be plenty of high-tech features in the new fourth bore, but elbow grease and shovels were still the preferred method for work on a groundwater drainage system. at the same time work has just gun on one major milestone, putting in the roadway. this rocky material is the sub-sub base, lose and rocky for drainage. eventually layers of materials capped with pavement will fill two to three feet from where the surface is now, reaching to the shoulder curb on one side and to just below the pedestrian walkway on the other. when finished, this fourth bore will carry westbound traffic only. >> with the construction of the fourth bore, there will be two tunnels permanen
congressman paul ryan defended his budget as a document of vision. >> our budget encapsulates what we think is the right way to go. fundamental tax reform for economic growth. patient center care rhee placing obama care. a responsible balanced budget. >> meanwhile, abc this week, house speaker john boehner says although they disagree, he trusts president obama. >> the president and i, as i've made very clear, have a very good relationship. we're open with each other. we're honest with each other. but we're trying to bridge some big differences. >> so do up trust president obama? >> absolutely. >> absolutely? >> absolutely. >> absolutely. firearms, flip-flops and flights to the middle east will all be part of what next week in washington will look like. lots to talk about. i want to get right to it. msnbc contributor goldie tailor of the goldie taylor project and david of the "the washington p." good to see all of you. good story with the republicans rank, when ohio senator rob portman, want co-sponsor of doma, defense of marriage act, snu ports same-sex marriage citing his gay son. house sp
-span. >> in his weekly address, president obama focuses on a energy policy. and representative paul ryan gives the republican response. >> hi, everybody. as a nation, our top priority is growing our economy and creating good middle class jobs. that's why this week i'm speaking to you from the argonne national laboratory in illinois, because few areas hold as much promise as what they're focused on right here harnessing american energy. talking after years of about it, we're finally poised to take control of our energy future. we produce more oil than we have in 15 years. we import less oil than we have in 20 years. we've doubled the amount of renewable energy we generate from sources like wind and solar with tens of thousands of good jobs to show for it. we're producing more natural gas than ever before -- with hundreds of thousands of good jobs to show for it. we've supported the first new nuclear power plant since the 1970s. and we're sending less carbon pollution into the environment than we have in nearly 20 years. so we're making real progress. but over the past few weeks, we got a remin
afterwards to see what each side has in terms of what their aspirations are. he had lunch with paul ryan yesterday. this is a change that i think we should encourage whether it's motivated for all sorts of reasons we don't understand or not, ronald reagan would have done that and george bush would have done that and for our country to be successful we have to put aside some of this vitriol that exists and began to recognize that just because the other side doesn't have our view it does not mean they are not motivated for love of country. .. and it requires the kind of that ronald reagan showed each and every day and that is why am honored to be here. [applause] >> thank you. thank you, guys. thank you very much. [applause] >> five minutes. you want to take a couple of questions? >> thank you so much, governor. we have got six minutes of time to take just a couple of questions. if you have a question, raise your hand. just wait until we put a microphone in a. tell us who you are. start right over here. >> peggy. governor bush, thank you so much for your wonderful talk. i was curious, with
%, marco rubio got 23%. you look down the list there was paul ryan, chris christie, in other words the top recognized, dr. carson got a good chunk of change there, so we showed that indeed the party is revolving around these new leaders in the conservative movement. we also have a couple of different tents. we've got libertarians, tea party activist, establishment conservatives so the whole idea of the cpac is to bring the whole tent together. >> although, senator paul might object to the, close to isolationist which has never been among the three things that reagan conservatives have stood for, what do you think it says, if anything? is this just a party in search of itself? >> well, as someone who was part of the democratic leadership council in the early '90s on staff. >> moderate, trying to moderate the democratic party? >> a group of democrats who were trying to lead the party out of the wilderness at the time and successfully did so, what you see out of cpac as an outside observer it's a chance for people to introduce themselves. i'm not sure that anybody, any american walked away wi
. no household can run that way. >> let me challenge you on this point because here is paul ryan this week, and he laid out very clearly what he thought the job was. let me play that. >> we think we owe the country a balanced budget. we think we owe the country solutions to big problems that are plaguing our nation -- a debt crisis on the horizon, a slow-growing economy, people trapped in poverty. we're showing our answers. >> right, but the answers rely on $700 billion in savings from interest. most of the deficit reduction comes from repealing the president's health care reform, which nobody thinks is going to happen. so how seriously should this be viewed as a roadmap for a balanced budget? >> it should be very serious, because budgets -- >> you're not going to repeal obama care. >> budgets are blue prints and priorities. we lay out. we think obama care should be repealed. the majority of americans agree with us. but we also think tax reforms should happen so you can grow the economy. if you allow these debts to continue to grow, they crowd out the private sector, crowd out the opportun
congressman paul ryan, the budget proposal and balance in a decade hinges on the repeal of obamacare. >> we believe that the law will collapse under its own weight and people will be eager as the details unfold. point two, the same point could be made for the senate budget, dead on arrival in the house, a trillion dollar tax increase with even more spending. >> reporter: ryan is of course the top republican on the house budget committee. the top democrat, democrat chris van holland made the case against the ryan budget proposal paying particular attention to the theoretical repeal of obamacare. >> their budget is built on a hoax. on one hand they say they will be in ten years, and on the other hand repeal obamacare, if you repealed it today the budget would not be balance. >> and part of the so-called charm offensive, congressman ryan says if anything big is going to get done that charm offensive needs to be sin veer and last until summer. harris. >> harris: a long time to charm. peter doocy, thanks very much. good to see you. as we told you earlier, senator lindsey graham opening up about
chris christie. paul ryan got 6% and scott walker got 5% of the vote. ted cruz, bobby of louisiana and former alaska governor sarah palin also received votes. next, president obama speaks to the group called organizing for action. then a conversation with bob edgar of common cause. then the weekly addresses with president obama and congressman paul ryan. >> what the public isn't paying as much attention as i am and you are and those of us who are part of this political party. there is a political community. it is about -- probably about 10 million people. it is the people who watch c-span, they watch "meet the ess," they watch fox news, cnn. they care about politics a lot. but, you know, we had 130 million voters. most people just get a lot of what goes on in politics is background noise. the background noise comes pretty much from the mainstream media. people form an opinion of romney -- bama and so on, it has fox news doesn't reach most of those people. fox gets great ratings and they have a loyal audience. o'riley"he shows "bill show is the most popular show. it gets two to thr

is a full-day story. granted that's the house majority caucus and paul ryan is a -- vp candidate and keith ellison was not on the ticket. congressional caucus doesn't have the same power in the house that the tea party caucus has. they are in the minority. at the same time there are real actual costs in terms of what kind of budget we are actually going to get because the center of gravity is so far over towards the ryan budget and, in fact, when the ryan budget came out, i will shut up for a second the ryan budget came out there was sense in which it was oh, man, doubling down and ignoring the election results. he is not -- you know, still going to repeal the affordable care act. but from his perspective, doubling down and keeping things anchored there is probably a pretty successful strategy in terms of dragging over the kind of medium line we drew on the graph. sam? >> well, it is strange. i mean, because -- what strikes me, though, about this go-around, first off the real problem starts with this notion of deficit and debt hysteria which i think is -- something that goes across the pol
